A unique case of fallopian tube herniation into the endometrial cavity after dilatation and curettage is presented. A 28-year-old patient who had secondary infertility for 2 years following dilatation and curettage without any other specific complaint was evaluated by laparoscopy and hysteroscopy. During these procedures, herniation of the right tube and infundibulopelvic ligament into the uterine cavity were observed. The herniation was repaired through a minilaparotomy incision. © 2009 Japan Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
